FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Altor Systems, Inc.
TEST THE SPEED OF YOUR MAC WITH 3D ENGINE DEMO DESIGNED FOR G4s
PALO ALTO, CA - September 14th, 1999 - Altor Systems announces the release of G4TimeDemo, an application designed to show how fast your Mac is at 3D gaming. G4TimeDemo shows off features of our leading edge 3D engine - Project B. Included is character animation technology at the level of motion picture special effects, running in real time on a G4!
G4TimeDemo was designed ground up to use the Velocity Engine in the G4. It shows the massive speed increases possible for games that use this new supercomputer technology, while running on G3's and iMacs so you can compare your machine with the G4. The demo is a real gaming test (as opposed to a CPU benchmark) as it includes 3D drawing, audio, physics, AI, interaction, and leading edge character animation. Some early results we have received are:

We welcome any results you may get. Please post them to comp.sys.mac.games.action so everyone can see them.
G4TimeDemo is free, and may be freely distributed over the net provided there is no financial charge for it. We would very much like to mirror our ftp site due to the demand, and would welcome anyone who could do so. Information on Project B, updated speed comparisons, and links to sites mirroring the demo are at
